ADMISSION POLICY AND PROCEDURES

  
Admission / Transfer at other times
  


 
Applying at a time other than at normal age of entry
 
 
If you would like to apply for a place at Hagley Primary School at a time other than at normal age of entry into the Reception year (mid year into Reception or at any time into Years 1 - 6), you will need to fill in a ‘CA1’ application  form. 
 
If you live in Worcestershire you can download a CA1 form from the Worcestershire County Council website:
 

If you live outside Worcestershire, you must obtain a CA1 application form from the council where you live (your "Home" Local Authority).
 
Once completed the CA1 form should be forwarded to your Current Home Authority Admissions Team to be processed. 

You will then be contacted and notified of the decision - normally within 10 school days of the form being received. 

  
Where it is not possible to offer a place, parents will be notified of the right of an appeal on behalf of the relevant admission authority, and in most cases an alternative school will be offered. You can also apply for your child to be added to the school's waiting list.

 

 
WAITING LISTS

 

If you are notified that there are currently no spaces in the requested year group you can ask for your child to be added to the relevant year group Waiting List. 
  
Waiting Lists for all Worcestershire Voluntary Controlled Schools and Community Schools (of which Hagley Primary is one) are maintained by the Pupil Admissions and Transfers Section at WCC and parents need to apply directly to WCC in order to be included. 
 
Please Note: 
  
Waiting lists are only maintained until the end of each term.  At that stage they will be discarded and parents will need to reapply at the start of the following term if they wish to be included.
 
The positional placing of applicants on the waiting lists is strictly determined by the Worcestershire County Council Admissions Criteria - places are not allocated on a 'first come first served' basis. 
  
This means that an applicant's position on the list is constantly subject to change as other applicants are added/removed from a list and/or if there is a change in any of the applicants' circumstances (i.e. a house move or sibling entering school etc.)
